Lab Tests & Diagnostic Procedures

Lab tests and diagnostic procedures are tests used to check if a person’s health is normal. For example, a lab can test a sample of your blood, urine or body tissue to see if something is wrong. A diagnostic test, like blood pressure testing, can show if you have low or high blood pressure.
